  1. Grabbed the 915 bus with cloudy skis. Up Silver Queen and down Paradise to the Paradise lift. Lower Ruby is a ton of fun with root rollers. Lapped that again, back up paradise and went Peoria and Horseshoe Springs since the sun doesn’t want to peak out. Springs is still crunchy but the bumps are nice. Down to SQ and did and international run. Easy to go 0-60 in a hurry that whole run. On SQ now and can see a snow shower moving in from the west. @AtomicSkiermight join at some point

  2. Nope, but he did offer me granola. I had my left over noodles. Snow showed up with @AtomicSkierand made visibility even worse. Currently having a burger and beer at Paradise.

  3. So a lot of these areas are really small. In the 200-400 vertical feet range. They had a hard time being viable as the sport changed in the 80s and 90s and skiers were seeking longer runs and more challenging terrain. However, there are some areas that are exceptions. The oil crises in the 70s definitely sunk a lot of small ski areas and I think this is overlooked. However, occasionally you get a place that is just mismanaged. So mismanaged, in fact that the true story is almost hard to believe. Enter Ski Snowpeak, in Juniata County. A mountain that could have been PA's biggest if it had

  4. Headed up Paradise after lunch and visibility was gone. Was going to call It there but the bottom vis wasn’t too bad and gave it another chance on Silver Queen. Wasn’t as bad at the top and found a couple inches of fresh snow. Lapped Monument to International with some snow hitting above the boot. Caught the 245 back and a remix of Whitney Houston “I want to dance with somebody” is currently playing thanks to DJ @AtomicSkier.

  5. ~repetitive post~ Another fantastic bluebird day at JF/BB this morning. Took about 7 runs at JF then shot over to BB for another 10 or so runs. Big Boulders parks are about the same as they were last year with a fresh build on Freedom.

  8. Hey All, I’m back from another fun morning at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 8:20am and it was in the low 20s under sunny sky’s. In the house were ZZSlope, Gary, Drew, C1er and Johnny Law. At the opening bell there was quite the lineup of people ready to shred. I was on first civilian chair with the darth Vader full face silver helmet guy. Challenge was super nice groomed cord..Razors was the same conditions on the top and fresh manmade lower down which was slow. Sidewinder was supee nice and yes a few mini root rollers, switchback w

  10. May want to take a walk through the BM ski shop just to see if they have some worthwhile bindings at a decent price (w/ SP discount), then you can get them mounted, checked, etc. all in one fell swoop.

  14. Bear creek calling it a year on March 21st for all non season passholders. If you’re a current or future season pass holder, you’ll be able to ski until April 3rd.

  15. Have you been to blue this year? VIP line is all but worthless on weekends this year, so it’s a perk in name only at this point. $109 for a day ticket also shouldn’t be the barometer for a fairly priced season pass, but that’s a different story entirely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. They handled icy conditions very well. Where I'd be hesitant on the RTMs, I just ripped down the ice on the Ripsticks. Yes, I encountered many slick spots at each mountain due to freeze/thaw

  19. Sweet. Hope they work out. I don't work in a shop anymore, but still like to help people find the right gear for a fair price. If blue can handle @AtomicSkier and @mute1080's shifts, they can handle the markers or tyrolias that those online shops were packaging with that ski. No finicky AFD or forward pressure setup on either of those like shifts or pivots.

  20. Looks like the standard going rate for the Griffon 13 should be $160-180 which seems fair for that binding. Not sure what blue stocks, but a mount at most might be $75? So you're probably topping out right around your $230 mark, but then you're buying products and services from somewhere local, and you can talk to a real employee in person should you run into any issues. If you've ever had to deal with a botched mount, or warrantying something, having an actual person to deal with is definitely worth something.

  21. I don't really trust anyone to mount my own stuff, but marker bindings are easy to set up correctly. I'd be wary to have an "online" shop mount them because in the event that something does get messed up and they don't catch it, you've then got to either send the skis back for them to fix their screw up, or get them to pay for someone else locally to fix it for you. You get a discount on shop work at Blue with your pass, and others here have had Blue's shop mount their skis this year without issue, for bindings that are much more complicated to set up than those markers. Just my two cents, you

  26. Not for anything but she took the easy route. The baller route is skiers left. I'm tempted to go on her Twitter page and tell her this. You can't boast about skiing elevator, conquering fears and whatnot then show a pic of you skiing the non baller route. Thats like me posting that I skied Corbetts but in reality side slipped in, fell on my ass and tumbled the entire way down.

  27. Glad they're finally getting it together. I swore I wouldn't get an epic pass... but I might reconsider if things improve next year. If they pave the parking lots though I'm out.

  28. My bro in law got the Johnson and Johnson vaccine yesterday and was sick today. My parents are coming up to allentown late next month for the first time in 13 months and staying at my aunt and uncles house. We’re all going to the Apollo grill and I think I’m gonna visit them Memorial Day weekend. What a fucking year but finally some hope.

  39. Yeah, I skidded off some speed before I hit the soft stuff once I knew where it was, tried to keep my knees glued together too. First time down got the heart racing a little. Glad I was on the soft stuff when I did my face plant. Just came up from the basement getting the skis razor sharp if Challenge is the same tomorrow that it was today. Although we are supposed to have a low of 32 tonight, as opposed to 18 last night, so who knows what conditions will be.
